Walk Off The Earth, the chart-topping viral hit-makers who have extended the boundaries of what a 21st century band can bring to pop music and pop culture, released their Columbia Records sophomore album, ‘Sing It All Away,’ in 2015. Creatively crafted from a roost of limitless possibilities, the album infuses all of the undeniable joy and eccentricity of a WOTE song with a decidedly more ambitious production. Their lead single, “Rule The World,” mixes bombastic production with its uplifting chant and foreshadows an album overflowing with musical surprises.
The multi-platinum selling Canadian quintet, Marshall, Gianni Luminati, Taylor, Joel Cassady, and Sarah Blackwood, had already established a significant global following when their cover of Gotye’s “Somebody I Used To Know,” ignited the blogosphere, eventually garnering 164 million views, and landing the band a recording contract with Columbia Records. To date, they’ve accumulated almost half billion cumulative views and more than 2 million subscribers. Their single, “Red Hands,” generated 11 million Spotify streams and spent five weeks at #1 on AAA radio. Most notably, however, they are one of the few artists to continually and successfully find success on both DIY online platforms and throughout the traditional music marketplace.
